Hi, new member here, the reddit is really inactive and I certainly felt the first shell I ever drank when I prepared 8 tablespoons the traditional method Saturday. Only I never stirred it so so kind of felt most on the last cup and I kneaded 4 more tablespoons and had all but the last one. I got home Sunday night and I took the 4 used tablespoons and threw in the blender with 8 new tablespoons and 32 ounces of water and coconut oil. Four minutes. Put through a strainer and it was weak AF. How can I salvage any of this? Was going to attempt to knead myself this last 12-ish tablespoons of wasted kava root powder but I don’t know how much water to add. Or should I just drink the root powder since it was in the blender? It’s kalm with kava’s Vanuatu Borongoru. If I should just start over with 4 new tablespoons and try with a new one I can do that, but I have read you can get a decent wash and apparently I’m better than the blender. Thanks so much I’m so sad I only ordered 1/2 a pound so it’s almost gone. ETA: someone over on Reddit suggested that I mix a heaping teaspoon and mix with 8 oz of water or milk and chug it. Bypass the straining and everything. Apparently Kalm With Kava has a finer texture. What do you guys think? I was thinking of trying this tonight. If I do, I will post the experiment results in a new thread titled: The Kava That was Not Kneaded but Needed. I’m having coffee for breakfast today and toast. I’m off work by 3 pm EST. Excited because I’m off the next three days in case something goes wrong.
